Savannah has attempted to break the Guinness World Record for the largest bar crawl two years in a row with no success. We got within 500 crawlers both times, but it just wasn’t meant to be. We are going to continue the South’s LARGEST and most POPULAR bar crawl in 2018 but hold off from getting Guinness World Records involved. We will attempt the record again in 2020!! Unitl then, come downtown Savannah and enjoy what 2019 has in store for you. EVERYONE who registers for this crawl will get their choice of retro/retired bar crawl t-shirts, left over from past events.
Let’s start with the basics…
HOW DOES A BAR CRAWL WORK?
Participants crawl at their own pace instead of all together in one huge group. Once crawlers pickup their scorecards at the starting bar, then they travel to all the bars listed enjoying drink specials and getting their scorecard marked at each bar. After visiting all the bars on the list, crawlers join us at the ending location for the After Party and to get the t-shirt!!
Drinking is 100% optional! Although this is a “bar crawl”, that doesn’t mean you are required to drink to participate. You do not have to purchase drinks at any bar in order to participate, get your scorecard stamped and earn your “The Crawl of the South” t-shirt. We love and welcome Designated Drivers to join us. If you do choose to drink, please drink responsibly.
Complete your scorecard by visiting each participating bars and be one of the first 250 crawlers to receive a t-shirt. As you enter the venue, the doorman or bartender will “mark” their respective bar’s section of your scorecard. You do not have to purchase a drink to have your scorecard marked.
We get summer accessories? On top of drink specials, all participants will receive a koozie, swag from our sponsors (while supplies last), a scorecard/map to mark your progress, and free entry into all participating bars. Also, the first 250 participants to complete their scorecard will receive an official Bar Crawl Savannah “The Crawl of the South” t-shirt!
After you have had your scorecard marked at all the bars, join us at Savannah Smiles for the After Party!! This is where you pickup your free and reserved t-shirts.
We will be giving away FREE t-shirts to the first 250 people to join us at the After Party with complete scorecard.
**Many of you want t-shirts, so for an extra $10 you may guarantee yourself a t-shirt, in your size, to be waiting for you at the After Party! You will find this option on the registration form. NOTE: You will only receive one t-shirt. This feature is to guarantee yourself a t-shirt when we run out and guarantee it will be in your size. Otherwise, you are more than welcome to try to be one of the first 250 and get a free t-shirt, size not guaranteed.
